GOG Connect currently offers to import Order of Battle to your library.
The thing is that the Steam version of the base game (free to play) has no campaign as such to play, only the tutorial. So since it's free, every Steam user is supposed to own it.

On the contrary, the GOG version includes the US Pacific DLC which is not free on Steam.

So by connecting it, you can actually receive the GOG version of this DLC for free.

It seems they fix it, now Order of Battle: World War II listed as unavailable.
For those that haven't bought anything yet for the Winter Sale.

It works but you'll have to install it completely on Steam first.

You can use the Steam Console or SteamCMD to add the game manual to your Steamaccount.

Installed (pre-allocated), but not downloaded. All you need is to allow Steam to begin the first stage and pre-allocate the space, then you can pause the true download and claim from Connect. You might have to refresh of course and wait a while, but it works. :D

No luck, here. Installed, ran the game, refreshed GOG... nothing.
I already owned this game, so here is a free copy from the winter sale:

Have fun

For those unaware / not used to GOG Connect and how it works, be sure to familiarise yourself with what exactly you need to do to your steam profile to allow GOG to access your game list. And even if you have everything set to public and linked your steam account with Connect, the system rarely works immediately. There is a dedicated thread that deals with Connect for advice.

There is an interesting solution to that you can try. Open steam client and play a game. Any game you had installed before. Come back and GOG Connect "may" see it.


Connect didn't see my games since last night (over 14 hours). I now opened steam, played a game for 10 seconds. Viola! I got 2 games now in my library. (I had learned that trick from a previous GOG Connect problem)

I haven't tried that approach, but I have an alternative: Log into your profile and keep your profile "Online". Then refresh Connect. That one has worked for me. Yes, it took a couple of minutes until Connect finally detected the game, but there it is.
